Fine motor Activities

Fine motor Activities

Whether there is a specific medical reason or late development, a child who struggles with fine motor control can become frustrated, angry or suffer low self-esteem. They may tire quicker than their peers when attempting fine motor tasks. Some of the tasks may include, resisting drawing and writing, having trouble holding a pencil correctly, slow handwriting and struggling to use scissors.These activities are designed to be fun and improve fine motor skills. I found that having a small box of tricks to draw upon for quick 10 minutes interventions worked well, can be used 1:1 or as a small group.

Basic Essay Scaffold

Basic Essay Scaffold

These are basic essay scaffolds (one for planning and one for the final product) that I use for students in Stage 4 or those with a learning difficulty. They are a great supplement when offering exam/assessment modification/differentiation. They're not complex and allow students to plan and use a writing booklet, with guiding questions to inform their structure and comments in any context. Definitely a good buy. Be sure to review my resources (honestly, too). I wish to continually improve. I ever you find that you couldn't fins a resource in Tes that you needed, let me know. I'll make it.

Revised coloured handwriting paper

Revised coloured handwriting paper

Hopefully easier to open now. Also the tracks are slightly smaller. This seems to be more helpful for children who need help with letter sizes and ascenders and descenders than paper with coloured lines. Also they seem to like the novelty of writing on colour. Any comments or suggestions for improvements?

Chromatography

Chromatography

This was created with a very wide ranging ability group. It has several levels of 'closure' and allows for differentiation and personalised learning for pupils without them feeling either patronised or discriminated against. This type of worksheet is usually produced during a lesson with input from pupils. Pupils choose the words to remove and put into boxes. The sheet can then be copied and differentiated. I often let youngsters decide which level of sheet that they want to do. Please rate or give feedback if you found this useful.
